A. L. HUMPHREYS, 187 Piccadilly 


I WAS fortunate to receive a volunteer offer 
from my friend, Mr Herbert M. Vaughan, 
to arrange, catalogue, and describe my col- 
lection of Welsh Book-Plates. His know- 
ledge of the subject, especially in regard to its 
Welsh application, is, I think, unrivalled. 

The collection, which contains about fourteen 
hundred examples, is the result of a very de- 
sultory desire, recurring at intervals during the 
last fifteen years, to bring together as many 
book - plates as possible having some Welsh 

The desire never developed into a hobby, and 
was only pursued as chance occasion offered, and 
as a side issue of a more serious attempt at book 
collecting, a pastime more dangerous and insidious 
both to the pocket and the temper. 

I did not realise that I had unconsciously 
succeeded in forming a not unimportant collection 
until Mr Vaughan one day descended on my library 
and spied the land. I gratefully accepted his aid ; 
he has attached a value to the collection which it 
would not otherwise possess, and has further 
increased that value by adding many rare plates 
from his own collection.

One hundred and fifty copies only of this 
Catalogue have been printed for private circulation 
and the type has been dispersed ; 50 copies on 
hand-made paper numbered I to 50, and 100 
copies on ordinary paper numbered 51 to 150. I 
have sent a presentation copy to each of the 
following institutions, with the hope that the 
valuable information compiled by Mr Vaughan 
may be of interest and service in the realms of 
Genealogy and Topography to future as well as 
present generations, especially amongst the many 
families in our self-governing Dominions and the 
United States who are of Welsh origin :

IN November, 1918, I received the whole of 
the collection of the Welsh book-plates that 
had been formed during several years by 
Sir Evan Davies Jones, Bart., M.P. To this 
I have myself added about fifty plates from my 
own collection. 

A word of explanation is here required as to the 
term " Welsh," for it covers not only the book- 
plates of persons residing in Wales or the Marches, 
but also people having connection with Welsh life, 
as well as families of Welsh descent living in 
England and Ireland and even oversea. I have 
had to use my personal judgment in the matter of 
inclusion and exclusion of " Welsh " book-plates, 
and my attitude has been that of including rather 
than excluding those with doubtful claims. Con- 
sequently, this collection must contain some speci- 
mens that have small right to be accounted Welsh ; 
yet I think on the whole my method is a sound 
one. In most cases I have been largely guided by 
the heraldic bearings the vast majority of book- 
plates are armorial in character rather than by 
the surname or domicile. 

For those who have never studied any work 
dealing with the history and evolution of the 


xii Introduction 

book-plate, I may state that the book-plate or 
book-label or ex-libris call it which you please 
came into vogue very shortly after the invention 
of printing in the middle of the fifteenth century, 
the early Igler and Pirkheimer plates being well 
known to collectors. Gradually it became popular 
on the Continent, and was common there long 
before its use extended to England. Only three 
English plates, all Elizabethan (those of Sir Nicholas 
Bacon, Sir Thomas Tresham and Joseph Holland} are 
known to have been produced in the sixteenth 
century. Slowly the book-plate increased in 
popularity during the seventeenth century, which 
saw the fine plates of Sir Edward Littleton, Sir 
Thomas Gore, Samuel Pepys and a few others ; but 
it was not till the year 1698 that the book-plate 
became fashionable. From that year, however, 
till the present day the custom of having a label 
of ownership pasted into the books both in public 
and private libraries has continued unbroken. 

From an artistic point of view, the book-plate 
since 1698 has gone through a succession of 
phases. First, there is the early "Jacobean " (so- 
called) design, with a square shield surrounded by 
mantling of acanthus foliage. These early Jacobean 
plates are usually dated, and in most cases seem to 
have belonged only to persons of high degree. In 
this collection the fine armorial plates of Sir John 
Aubrey and Gwyn of Llansannor are admirable 
specimens of this early type, while of slightly 

Introduction xiii 

later date are the plates of Sir Thomas Hanmer, 
Baron Robert Price and Sir Thomas Trevor. 

From the simple design of plain shield and 
mantling the book-plate during the reigns of Anne 
and George I. began to grow more elaborate. Of 
this later Jacobean style we have good examples 
in the John Wogan of Wiston, the Lady Lloyd \ and 
the gorgeous plate of Henrietta-Louisa Fermor, 
Countess of Pomfret (nee Jeffreys of Acton), which 
is one of the largest and finest plates ever engraved. 

About 1730 the "Jacobean" gradually began 
to merge into the Rococo, or Louis XV., or 
" Chippendale," a leading characteristic of which 
is the shape of the shield, that now becomes curved 
and often lop-sided. The more formal later 
Jacobean embellishments now give place to a riot 
of flourishes and foliage, often without symmetry. 
The large Thomas Pryse (of Gogerddan) is one of 
the finest specimens of this phase ; but G. Davies, 
Harwich^ John Myddleton^ John Hughes of Brecon 
and dozens of others all offer good examples of 
this class. 

It may be added here that both in the later 
Jacobean and the Chippendale plates a large 
amount of extraneous ornament is often used. 
Cherubs, " sisters allegoric," globes, books, urns, 
musical instruments, curtains, mantles are intro- 
duced with good effect, and in such cases the plate 
is usually styled " Pictorial." In fact, the " Book- 
Pile" design becomes in course of time a regular 


feature, and is often so designated. The plate of 
Will. Worthington is a good example of this style of 
decoration. The " Mantle " too is frequently used 
as a background to the shield, as in the plates 
of David Lloyd and Richard Mostyn of Penbedw. 
Naval and military trophies are also found (cp. 
the plate of Adam Rogers). 

After the " Chippendale" comes the " Festoon " 
or Louis XVI. period, beginning, roughly, about 
1775. Here the shield regains its symmetry but 
becomes spade-shaped, and the swags of roses or 
fruit, the chains of corn-husks,. the elegant pins, all 
own a regular value in the scheme of ornament. 
Sometimes the shield is enclosed in an ornamental 
oval and forms a medallion, as in Sir William 

About 1790 the heavy wreaths and loops and 
light chains are discarded, only scroll- or ribbon- 
work and a few sprigs of foliage or a pair of palm 
branches being left. Even these ornaments, called 
the " Wreath and Ribbon," soon disappear, and 
we have the plain spade shield, which marks the 
opening years of the nineteenth century. 

About 1810 the shield loses its spade form, and 
becomes first square and plain, and then a little 
later appears with pointed ears. From 1830 or 
thereabouts the average book-plate degenerates 
into a mere " die-sinker," generally consisting of 
a slightly curved shield with a mass of shaded 
mantling above. 

Introduction *v 

About 1870, however, taste began to improve, 
and the Eclectic School arose. The elaborate 
armorial designs of C. W. Sherborn, the portrait 
plates of Stacey Marks, the choice designs of 
Batchelor, Kite, Eve, Kate Greenaway and numerous 
other artists of the late Victorian era are frequently 
found. There are several excellent examples of 
this modern school included in this collection, 
of special notice among them being the plates of 
Lord Kenyan, Dr J. L. Proper t, Harry Arthur 
James, Sir John Rhys, Muriel Rogers, etc. 

Mention should also be made of the " Land- 
scape " Plates, which curiously enough reached 
their highest point of excellence in the first 
quarter of the nineteenth century. Some of these 
were designed by Bewick, Sherwin, or their pupils, 
and are of great beauty. In this connection the 
pretty little plate of Thomas Evans, M.D., should 
be noted for its view of Henllan on the Teifi. 

The bulk of these book-plates are, of course, 
" Armorial," but there are also a fair number of 
plain labels. These are often of special interest, 
seeing that they usually belonged to schoolmasters, 
clergymen, poets, authors and other literary persons. 
To my mind the most interesting specimen of this 
class to be found in this collection is the T. S. 
Evans, Mathematical Master at Christ's Hospital, 
which is formed out of the 47th Theorem of the 
first book of Euclid. Leather-gilt labels, too, are 
not uncommon in the early nineteenth century. 

xvi Introduction 

A fair number of plates bear the name or initials 
of the engraver, and a smaller number show a 
date. I have noted these signatures and dates in 
my catalogue, and in a few cases have drawn the 
reader's attention to specimens that are not included 
in the compiled lists of H. W. Fincham's Artists and 
Engravers of Book Plates, or of W. Hamilton's 
Dated Book Plates, the two recognised authorities 
on these classes of book-plate. It is rare to find a 
book-plate both signed and dated, but Welsh 
examples exist in Howe// Gwyn of Garth, 1742, and 
John Hughes of Brecon, 1745, both being engraved 
by Skinner of Bath. 

This leads me to the question : How far were 
book-plates actually engraved in Wales itself? 
The earliest book-label printed in the Principality 
is, in all probability, that of " Lewis Edward, His 
Book, Anno Domini 1721 " (not included in this 
collection but reproduced in Old West Wales Book 
Plates, " West Wales Historical Records," vol. iv.). 
This was most likely the work of Nicholas Thomas, 
printer of Carmarthen, and its date shows it to have 
been produced only three years after the issue of 
the first recorded printed book in Wales from 
Isaac Carter's press at Trefhedyn (Adpar). No 
doubt all the simple printed labels and a certain 
proportion of the Armorial Plates of Welsh 
residents were printed locally in Wales, or at least 
at Shrewsbury or at Chester ; but the name of 
place or printer is very rarely given. One out 


of a few exceptions to this statement is the label 
of William Lloyd of Maes-Annod^ which is de- 
scribed as " Printed by J. Ross, Carmarthen, 1764." 
This must have been in the second year of the 
existence of his press, but I know of no other 
signed book-plate by this publisher, although I 
recognise his characteristic work in certain unsigned 

With regard to the Notes I have added to the 
technical descriptions of the plates, I must make 
some excuse for their paucity. The fact is, that 
Welsh heraldic bearings are more often a puzzle 
than a help in the process of identification. My 
catalogue is necessarily an alphabetical one, based 
on the various surnames, whereas (as every student 
of Welsh heraldry knows) the true Welsh coats-of- 
arms bear no relation to mere surnames, but are 
borne by the descendants or pseudo-descendants 
of this or that mediaeval chieftain or tribal lord, 
who has been posthumously supplied with armorial 
bearings. This difficulty does not arise in identify- 
ing the families or persons of English origin in 
Wales, and that is the reason why the English 
names are better and more fully treated than those 
of purely Cymric descent. Again, the mere name 
in conjunction with a coat-of-arms is quite insufficient 
for identification. No one could ever really pretend 
to discover the true owner of such plates as 
" Thomas Lloyd " with the coat of Cadifor ap 
Dyfnwal; or "John Williams" with that of 


Ednyfed Vychan ; or " William Edwards " with 
that of Tewdwr Trevor. There must have been a 
dozen or more contemporary armigeri of those very 
names and entitled to those coats, and it would 
require some very strong evidence or intimate local 
knowledge indeed to name the true owner of any 
particular plate with such slender information to 
build upon. For the Welsh place-name is rarely 
given on a book-plate, although in ordinary speech 
it is seldom omitted. That I have failed to 
identify through faulty research in many instances 
is probable enough ; at the same time I have not 
jumped to any conclusion by guess-work. A good 
many of my notes are safeguarded by a preliminary 
query, and in some cases by two queries. 

I have found the following books of special use 
and importance : 

H. W. Fincham, Artists and Engravers of Book 
Plates, 1897. 

W. Hamilton, Dated Book Plates (three parts), 

Burke's and Lodge's Peerage (v.d.). 

Burke' s Extinct Peerage, 1866. 

Burke's Baronetage (v.d.). 

Burke's Extinct Baronetage, 1838. 

Burke's History of the Commoners, 1836-1838. 

Burke's Landed Gentry (v.d., but especially the 
edition of 1849, with Supplement and Index). 


Walford's County Families of the United Kingdom 

Kelly's Directory of the Titled, Landed and Official 
Classes (v.d.). 

Foster's Alumni Oxonienses (an invaluable work ; 
would that the University of Cambridge possessed 
a like record !). 

Dictionary of National Biography. 

Rev. R. Williams' Eminent Welshmen^ 1852. 

T. Nicholas, Annals of the Counties and County 
Families of Wales^ 1872. 

These are a few only of the requisite books for 
such a task as this. All the County Histories of 
Wales ; G. T. Clark's Genealogies of Glamorgan ; 
the whole series of the Ex Libris Society's publica- 
tions (of which defunct society I was a member) ; 
the various pedigrees given in the Archaologia 
Cambrensis and the Cymmrodor\ the Transactions of 
the Carmarthenshire Antiq. Society ; the recently 
published work on North Wales Pedigrees ; the 
volumes of the Powysland Club ; the various 
works dealing with the High Sheriffs of Wales 
and the Border Counties ; Foster's Men at the Ear ; 
the publications of The West Wales Historical 
Society (which in vol. iv. includes my own 
article, "Old West Wales Book-Plates, 1698- 
1830," with a list of about seventy of the chief 
book-plates in the counties of Cardigan, Car- 
marthen and Pembroke) ; W. G. Shaw's Official 

xx Introduction 

List of the Knights of England, etc., etc., etc., 
ad infinitum. 

In the matter of Heraldry, which naturally plays 
a very important part in this work, I have found 
that Pap worth's Armorial worked in conjunction 
with Burke's Armoury sufficed for my purpose. 
The engravings of old Cymric armorial bearings in 
Enderbie's Cambria Triumphans I have also found 
useful, likewise some of the book-plates them- 
selves, which in certain cases enumerate and name 
the various coats depicted therein (cp. "Edward 
Abadam^ Joshua Edwards ', etc.). 

It may be objected by the critic that a large 
fraction of these 1400 book-plates that I have 
catalogued belonged to unimportant persons, or else 
have no artistic value and own no personal interest. 
This is quite true, and I grant at once that the 
whole of the " Crested " book-plates are (with a 
few exceptions) uninteresting. Still, they are 
book-plates, and have belonged to Welshmen 
owning libraries, and therefore form an integral 
part of the whole mass of Welsh book-plates that 
we are anxious to ascertain and collect. Thus all 
these plates go to make up a not unimportant 
page of our literary history during the past two 
centuries and more. And besides this, they 
present us with a number of heraldic, genealogical 
and local points of interest that will prove of some 
service to the historical and topographical student 
of the future. That the book-plate owns a 

Introduction *xi 

definite place in literary culture is proved by the 
considerable number of works that have been 
published thereon. For over two centuries it 
has reflected the passing phases of taste and art in 
Western Europe, and it affords, to myself at least, 
some satisfaction to show that Wales is well repre- 
sented in this attractive by-path of literature. 


March 1919. 


THE book-plates are arranged under the initial 
letter of owner's surname : A, B, C, D, etc. 
Within these sections I have also arranged the 
plates in alphabetical order so far as has been 
practicable. But a strict index order has not been 
attempted, and the plates often follow a scheme of 
heraldic or family sequence. This will easily be 
understood by observing the long heraldic " runs," 
especially under such surnames as Lloyd, or Morris, 
or Williams. 

Peers and Bishops appear under their family 
surnames e.g. Lisburne, Pomfret under Vaughan, 
Fermor ; Bishop of Bangor under Evans, etc. Place- 
names, when given alone, are treated similarly : 
thus Pengwern, Rhual, appear under Mostyn, 
Edwards, etc. 

A few plates whose owners' surnames I have 
been unable to trace to my satisfaction have been 
placed in an " Unidentified " section at the end. 

A good many abbreviations are made use of 
throughout the Catalogue e.g. : 

Jac. for Jacobean
